The retirement of the Royal Australian Air Force F‑111 fleet on 3 December 2010 will mark a significant milestone in the history of military aviation in Australia. We are delighted to be able to showcase and celebrate the life and service of the F‑111 aircraft through Pigs’ Tales, the official F‑111 retirement ceremonies.
Pigs’ Tales will not only provide a forum to commemorate the history of these amazing aircraft, but will also provide an avenue to honour all of the men and women who flew, maintained and supported the F‑111 during its service to the Royal Australian Air Force.
I do hope that you will be able join in the farewell to this icon of the Australian skies.
